Synopsis: From dust jacket: "For 18 years Tillman D. Taylor was sheriff of Umatilla County, in the Blue Mountain country of eastern Oregon. Kindly, fearless Til Taylor brought orderliness to a community that had known a tumultuous pioneering past. Then, on a pleasant Sunday in July of 1920, the calm was shattered by a calamity in the courthouse jail at Pendleton. Six Prisoners broke jail, leaving Sheriff Taylor mortally wounded at age 54. The murder of Pendleton's most revered citizen enraged the great Northwest and touched off its most famous manhunt. For six days and six nights posses numbering men in the hundreds Searched along the Umatilla River and rugged mountain, stalking the fugitives who had broken up and were moving singly or in pairs... The Author has recaptured the full force of this tragedy and the starkly powerful yet colorful drama in which he was posse man and reporter half a century ago. He has included his enthralling recollection of the history of Umatilla County and its environs including the Indian wars, stagecoach holdups, saloon shenanigans, etc."....This is a rich and remarkable narrative and is a book that you will not be able to put down until you come to the end....
